an end to the ongoing violence in the gaza strip. yesterday's fed chairman ben bernanke issued warnings to u.s. leaders negotiating over the so- called fiscal cliff about the serious financial impact looming on the horizon. that's where we begin this morning. how confident are you about the state of the u.s. economy? what steps are you taking to prepare for the potential impact if the u.s. goes off the fiscal cliff? give us a call this morning. you can also catch up with us on all your favorite social media sites, twitter or facebook. or e-mail us. thismorning to you on wednesday, november 21. we are talking about federal reserve chairman ben bernanke's comments yesterday about the fiscal cliff, and getting your thoughts on bthe u.s. economy. and this headline -- also, in the financial times -- to tell little bit more about ben bernanke's , and sister day we turn to david clarke of "politico," their financial services editor. thanks for joining us. guest: thanks for having me. host: what is making the most waves from his speech? guest: in the past he has warned that congress and the pre

for urgency to get a plan in place. the question is can they actually do it. >> ben bernanke is speaking to the economic club of new york, he'll be talking about the recovery and policy. he will be taking questions. so we'll see whether this speech offers any fresh take on the fed's appetite for more different stimulus. what do you think we might learn in. >> i think it depends on who is there and what kind of questions that we get. i think the main curiosity is what will the fed do at the end of the rear with the twist operation and have they properly converted to another sort of easing plan. and i think that the consensus is that there will be more stimulus from the fed, especially given how uncertain the backdrop is. you can't have the fed stopping something and the potential for fiscal tightness. it would be terrible for the economy. so i think we can expect the fed to at least try to offset what's happening down in d.c. >> all right. george, good to speak to you this morning. still to come, america's rich and famous have been flocking to south beach for year, but find out who is tra
: but quickly, sir, we have to go. can we really thank ben bernanke because of this re-election? because of ben bernanke and his monetary policies and infusion of liquidity that is why the market is up? that's why you're saying then the president was reelected. >> ben bernanke in monetary policy can help for the wealth effect because stocks are up. but monetary policy has really done nothing to add jobs. tracy: no, agreed. >> to get things going. so you add jobs through tax incentives and through pure organic growth. not by keeping money cheap. this is wealth effect type of situation. at the end of the day, remember, we in america vote our pocketbook and our pocketbook feel as little better with stocks being up 15%. tracy: i guess. i don't know, maybe that is the rationale for yesterday. brian bell city, thanks so much for bmo capital markets. lori: you can not credit the president with the market rally. tracy: ben bernanke. lori: your policy, wealth effect drove people to riskier assets and higher return equity markets. for the administration to take credit for it, brian's point, got to raise
events of the morning. actually today fed chairman ben bernanke's speech at the economics sclub of new york is coming up at 12:15 eastern time. traders will be listening no any comments on the central bank's operation twist program and discussions about changing how the fed communicates about interest rates. operation twist expires next month. and there is some speculation the fed will continue making asset purchases by expanding the size of its $40 billion a month quantitate of it easing program. also on the economic agenda today, october housing starts released at 8:30 a.m. analysts looking for a decline in new building despite a steady stream of positive news on housing lately. yesterday the national association of home builders said the confidence between the nation's home builders has risk to its highest level in 6 1/2 years. and earnings front, a number of companies set to post quarterly results. hewlett-packard and best buy. shares of hp down more than 48% so far this year. meg whitman has a lot of explaining to do. and shares of best buy have fallen more than 41% since january.
chairman ben bernanke warned about going over the fiscal cliff tuesday saying it could pose a substantial threat to the economy. and we have brand-new weekly jobless numbers out this morning. how will wall street react? well, the opening bell is just ringing so let's get to the market rundown. cnbc's becky quick is here. thank you, becky, for joining us on this wednesday before thanksgiving. what do we know today? >> reporter: you know, luke, what you brought up about ben bernanke was really interesting because the market knows the s fiscal cliff was out there. that's what it's been reacting to. when bernanke spoke yesterday, it spooked the markets again. they know it's ut there but just the idea of it being brought up, people saying what a big deal it is reminds them once again this is a huge issue that has not yet been solved. this morning it looks like we are opening slightly weaker, down by maybe 20 points for the dow. a lot of things that people have been watching and waiting with congress out of session heading into the rest of the week, there is no real sense that any deal will b

on a holiday week where it's been thin. my problem with what he said was is that ben bernanke said if we go off the fiscal cliff, he might not be able to impact those head winds in a meaningful way. many of his programs the last couple years haven't addressed the head winds of slowness in a meaningful way. many people down here totally agree. but i think that a tweet by bill gross sums it up best. the tweet is something like this. it said, well, now ben bernanke is acknowledging what we've said is a new normal arriving. i guess it's here. i would agree with that. i think most people i deal with never expected a 3.5%, 4% gdp handle for a long time. the markets reacted very differently. if you look at an interest rate chart, interest rates were virtually ignored and are actually moving higher, which doesn't fit a weaker economy. many people think that would happen in treasuries today and more european related. looks like greece is going to get their money. >> if you're putting your money, rick, on lower potential gdp, being in the 2% range, i think that's kpexactly what you would do. you would se
